It is very rare to find very similar (but still not identical!) pieces by John Pearson but I was recently sent an image of a large repousse copper panel.
It has been suggested that this landscape, signed on the back with the simple “J. P. 1900.” and measuring 41 inches by 9.5 inches, is an allegorical rendition of Jerusalem, flanked by a phoenix on the Mt. of Olives and the lion of Judah on the facing hill.
What is interesting is that a very similar panel was sold by Woolley & Wallis auctioneers in Salisbury in December 2014 but in a different orientation – a mirror image. Is it possible that these are a pair?
This panel, also dated 1900, and of the same dimensions, has slightly different details.
